Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
- Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.
- Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor,quotient, coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity.
- Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).
Use variables to represent numbers and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
Students are successful when they can…
- evaluate numerical expressions containing exponents.
- recognize that variables represent unknown quantities.
- communicate in writing about translating and evaluating variable expressions using precise mathematical language, including the vocabulary variables, coefficients, constant, and term.
- evaluate expressions for given values of variables using the order of operations when appropriate.
- apply the properties of operations with expressions involving variables to generate equivalent expressions.
- explore the concept of like terms and applying combining like terms in expressions accurately.
- reason that two expressions are equivalent through the use of substitution.
- use precise mathematical vocabulary when discussing expressions and variables.
- develop expressions involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division from real-world problems.
